Deployed the new siege tank looks freaking insane, undeployed they look a bit dull... Guess I'll have to wait for a gameplay video before making a judgement, everything looks way better in the videos.

"Recent improvements have included the addition of bay facilities to carry a number of SCVs while the command center is in transit. This facilitates rapid exploitation of fresh mineral fields or vespene pockets, as well as supplying a handy shelter for the SCVs in case of enemy action."

Oh man. Terrans just got pimped... seriously cool stuff, I'm loving the new tanks icon_smile.gif Reapers with their demo charges seem like awesome hit and run base attackers - running in, destroying your supply depots and then raping your eco, and then running away. Ugh icon_sad.gif Anyway, as I said, I just can't wait for Zerg info now icon_biggrin.gif If Terran and Protoss are anything to go by, we're going to have some epic units and abilities icon_smile.gif

They've not actually changed the tank that much - it's deceptive icon_wink.gif The darkening of the texture makes it look a lot grittier - makes a whole world of difference. Obviously the model has been adjusted a bit, but really it's just a case of taking away the clowny cartoony look and making it much darker. I'm sure Terran players will be duly happy icon_smile.gif

wow...impressive...all I can say

is that Raynor in the concept art stepping on the zergling? Raynor is x10 cooler, as impossible as Raynor being any cooler sounds. GG zerg and toss, we got the most badass hero in the campaign!

also note that the factions seem to now have their own coat of arms thing, sorta; emblem

in the screenshot of the ghost section, some terran units have the yellow officer/veteran rank thing above them (don't know what it's called in english), meaning units can gain rank now? will it make veteran units tougher as in ra2 or just a cool thing to reflect how many kills they have?

remember soul hunters who do more damage with more kills, apparently terran will have a similar "veteran" thing I guess

damn I feel like such a tool "omg dats teh new seigetank lol"

Actually, I think it's Tychus Findlay, the guy you see getting his armor put on in the trailer Blizzard used to announce the game.

I really hope that the how many kills a unit has effects the units attack or defense. I all the tanks to be the same, not "OMG HERO TANK!! FOCUS FIRE ON IT!!!!"

Those techtrees aren't complete. If they are, then the Terrans have lost the Reaper and Medic and the Protoss have lost the Reaver.

terrans didn't loose the reaper, look at the right of barracks they didn't loose medics either, look at the read letters in barracks

You can see meds in the gameplay vids! Reavers tho...if those are taken out, it's time to go to war!

You and your Reaver drops Frito icon_biggrin.gif To be fair, now that they've dropped the Soul Hunter, I think they'll have to keep the Reaver, just to keep the number of troop options equal for each race. I really want to hear more about the Star Relic at the moment though, the cloaking buildings thing sounds pretty interesting. Also - anyone know what a Nomad or Predator is? They're on the Terran tech tree from the Starport, but we've not met them yet afaik. Also, I would like to submit another complaint about the lack of Zerg information D:<

I agree, the screenies look kind of cartoony - but really, in videos and with all the animations, the game as a whole really doesn't feel that cartoony icon_smile.gif The graphics don't matter though, haha. Thoughts on the RPG style single player campaign? I like the idea of earning money to unlock the techtree, could be fun icon_smile.gif

That doesnt sound good. I hope they give it a proper story rather than follow EA's C&C formula of touring the world and completing random objectives (which seems to fit well with an RPG style).

It was also revealed at Blizzcon that cinematics between levels will be interactive. You play as Raynor and you get to choose what to say and stuff... pp_smiley5.gif
